What if you had a planner that actually kept you organized and productive... and you didn’t have to throw more onto the pile of planners that you bought with good intentions - and didn’t work out?!
THE MINIMAL-ISH PLANNER
NEW, UNDATED VERSION YOU CAN REUSE!
This planner is the perfect combination of “just enough” and “not too much”.
Maybe you’ve tried planners before where there was just TOO MUCH to keep track of.
Too many checklists. ✔️
Too many boxes. 📝
It felt overwhelming and not sustainable, so it sat and collected dust on a shelf instead of helping you stay organized.
And maybe you’ve tried planners that simply had the date and time - and you need just a little more structure and inspiration?
My name is Diana Rene, and I’ve bought what feels like every planner on the market over the years.
….but as badly as I wanted them to magically work….
They just didn’t.
I wasted money on planner after planner because I couldn’t figure out how to make it work well inside my busy life.
Then I had kids and became a busy mom -- and it got even harder to find a planner that truly worked for me.
"My favorite planner I have ever used!"
Being able to manage my time using a time blocking method in addition to a reminder to notice and make note of daily gratitudes and affirmations has made this my favorite planner I have ever used!

"It's helped me see accountability in a positive light."
I love the planner. I love that there's a bit of structure, but I can still tailor it to suit me and my family. The prompts are easy to follow. There's plenty of room for doodles and notes. It's definitely helped me see accountability in a positive light.

So one day in 2019, I decided I was going to create my own planner that works perfect FOR MYSELF, and it worked so well that I just had to share.
I set out to create the perfect planner for busy moms that has the right mix of inspiration, structure, and lots of room for appointments and soccer practices.
It will help you to be organized when you really don’t feel that way!I need this planner!
"My favorite planner!"
Diana Rene’s Minimal-ish Planner is my favorite planner for keeping track of my daily schedule and to-do’s, but most of all, for emptying my brain of all the other stuff swimming around and having that right next to my schedule and to-do’s! I use a repurposed old disc system cover and discs to house it all, and I love this. I print out the pages that I use—the brain release/meal plan and weekly reflection (printed double sided) and the dailies (printed double sided). I’m not a monthly layout girl, and I never use year-at-a-glance, so I don’t print those! I punch the brain dump page on BOTH the right and left margins, and then can move it around to face my daily page! It’s fantastic! I made a little bookmark out of a clear empty laminating sleeve, so I can read through it! The separate boxes for reflection, goals, non-negotiables, etc. are all wonderful, and if I don’t use one (or any) on a particular day, that’s fine! I’m grateful for them to make me pause and think, even if I don’t write anything down. The hourly really helps me wrap my head around my days. My family has a very erratic schedule, and the hourly layout is wonderful for that. I’m really enjoying that I can tailor this planner so much for my own needs and at the same time utilize its already-printed content. Great job, Diana!
